Getting a new address – house on the move

A 120-year-old house is on the move today in Port Colborne, again. Many people are coming out to see the historic house making its way to its new address.

The house currently located on 21 Adelaide is being lifted and relocated one block west to 60 Adelaide.

This is the second time the house has been relocated within Port Colborne. The house originally sat across the street from the Belmont Hotel in what is now a parking lot. Approximately 30 years ago the house was moved to 21 Adelaide Street. One house, three different addresses.

Starting at 9 a.m. this move will result in road closures and detours for both residential and commercial drivers. The house should be at its new location by around noon, if all goes well.
